First look: 2010 Topps Five Star Football (with poll) by Chris Olds

By Chris Olds | Editor

Topps released the basic product info and preview information for a new high-end football card line that will arrive in late February, a brand that it is apparently quite confident in.

How confident is it in 2010 Topps Five Star Football?

“Meet the 2010 Product of the Year … ” reads the first line of its preview materials.

Each tin of Five Star includes four autographed cards — all signed directly on the card — and one jumbo Relic, with the product promising a “superior checklist,” cards printed on 154-point stock and all cards numbered to 150 or less.

Based on the solicitation cost, collectors can expect to pay at least $400 per tin for the hobby-exclusive product.

Among each pack’s autographs will be one autographed Rookie Card, one autographed rookie patch card, one autographed veteran or legend patch and either an autographed Relic book or on-card dual autograph.

The product is quite heavy on rookie autographs — meaning it will be quite heavy on Rookie Premiere jersey and patch swatches — while the veterans slated to sign, according to the preliminary checklist, include Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Matt Forte, Drew Brees, Art Monk, Howie Long, Junior Seau, Steve Young, Jim Brown, John Elway, Joe Namath, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Eli Manning, Adrian Peterson and many others.

After you examine the images below, take our poll…

it’s all about football

Too heavily rookie based. Nobody cares about patches from jerseys that were worn for a few minutes at an event in May.

They need a much better veteran checklist for this to attract anyone other than the mojo-loving sick-pull posting kiddies that have destroyed the hobby.
